1. I agree with everything you say Matthew, and would only suggest, that in fairness :

    Articles should also mention which, if any, authors that speak out are Amazon exclusive or receive special compensation, and –

    That the segment of small self-published authors, unlike other authors, are not allowed to be in Kindle Unlimited without agreeing to be exclusive.

    Then there would be a pure and open stance regarding both Amazon and Hachette or other big publishers.

    Ignoring the affiliations of Amazon connected writers or blogs, or the exclusivity requirement for hundreds of thousands of small authors, leaves proposals for fairness or balanced reporting lacking.

  2. Glad I dropped my SinC membership. I am sick and tired of all these ‘professional’ organizations that are so scared of traditional publishers that they are basically shills.

    I don’t have the energy to respond – glad you did.
